CHICAGO -- One of Chicago's grand old theaters will get a new life thanks to some high technology.

The new Regal Theater on the city's South Side is set to become one of the country's first ever hologram theaters.

The 89-year-old landmark is being outfitted with hologram networks technology, which will "beam" artists performing elsewhere into the venue.

Fans will get the chance to see holographic performances from artists who have already passed away, such as Tupac Shakur.

The grand opening is expected on October 1.
